Students set up informative displays on topics ranging from caring for baby’s teeth to mental health awareness. Everyone had the option to participate in activities that included a fitness assessment, foot care treatment, and even making a fruit smoothie with the exercise bike blender.
Event organizers worked closely with community agencies and businesses to provide attendees with healthy prizes, snacks, and a takeaway bag that included a gym membership.
“In addition to various interactive displays and activities, we incorporated a needs assessment component to help identify the health needs and priorities at the Five Corners site,” said Hannah MacDonald, Director of the School of Health Studies at UFV.
“We wanted to focus on learning from those that need it most in order to provide them with meaningful resources and support in the future.”
